EVENING MAIL -   Ireland's longest running Evening title, from it's establishment in 1823 till its demise in 1962. 

 

 

              The fortnight has been remarkable for the final extinction of the relics of the rebel force on the frontier of Nepaul. Nana, it is now known, died of fever some few weeks ago. Azimoollah, his chief adviser in the Cawnpore massacre, survived him only a few days. Thus is the man who traveled in England, and received such extraordinary letters from English ladies—l have read a bundle of them myself—and who believed, it is said, that their slaughter would terrify England into surrendering India. Hunger, disease, and exposure did their work on about a dozen more—among them Khoda Buksh, the rebel general; and Dabee Bukah, of Gonda; Murgut Singh, of Bandah ; Purwan Singh, of Azamgarh ; Goolab Singh, of Burria ; Bainee Madhoo, of Bankipore; Khan Ally Khan, of Lucknow; and Hurdeo Persaud, Chuckladar of Hyderabad. Jong Bahadur seems to have been released by these deaths from his obligation to protect his guests, and after months of hesitation he ordered their expulsion. They were sent in one by one with detachments of Sepoys. Among them are Khan Bahadur Khan, the man who set a regular government in Bareilly ; Ummur Singh, brother of Koer Singh the Zemindar, and feudal chief of all our Bhojpore SepoysMummoo Khan, the favorite of the Begum ; Jomala Persad, the Nana’s second in command ; the Ranee of Gondah ; and 3,000 rank and file. A man described as Feroze Khan, of Delhi, has also been given up, but this individual is not, I believe, Feroze Shah, who broke out from the Terai and reached Bundelkhand. The Sepoys are generally sent to their homes, but their ringleaders,with all the chiefs, are reserved fortriaL One two of them, Mummoo Khan and Jomala Persad in particular, are steeped to the lips in blood. The latter was one of the five who sat upon the raised platform at Cawnpore to watch the massacre ; Nana, Azimoollah, Tantia Topee, and Bala being the remaining four. Of them all but one have escaped punishment on this side of the grave. The Begum is now the only leader of note remaining, and she cannot have more than 1,500 followers, half-armed, half-fed, and without artillery.
